Great Frontline site for the recent program Israel's Next War, which examines the coming conflict between Sharon's government which, along with a majority of the Israeli population, supports Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, and a minority of very militant settlers who believe (and for the last forty years have been encouraged in this belief by their government) that their mystical claim to the land should supercede the claims of those who've actually been living there for the last 2000 years. Some rabbis have called upon Israeli soldiers to disobey the disengagement order, and many settlers have threatened to violently resist any attempt to remove them from Gaza.

An equally appropriate title for the program would have been "Israel Prepares to Sleep in the Bed It Made."
